Place of Eagles
Keraptis is the known name of an ancient wizard who once spread fear and tyranny across the realms. After overthrowing his once-mighty home city of Ulfguard, legend states that Keraptis’ black wizardry grew so powerful that he gained mastery over death itself, and he led armies of undead and otherworldy creatures across Faerun.
Keraptis was defeated one hundred years ago by an alliance of nations led by a high priest of Torm, whose name has since been forgotten. Keraptis’ soul was imprisoned in White Plume Mountain, locked there by magic inherent in the weapons Wave, Whelm, and Blackrazor.
After these weapons were removed from the mountain, Keraptis’ soul was once again released into the realms.
